I’ve been chewing Wrigley’s Doublemint® gum for years.
I didn’t realize that in 2003, Wrigley’s changed the packaging on their Doublemint gum.
Ok. No big deal ….. until I popped a stick in my mouth, that is.
I noticed a different taste in the gum.
Then I read the ingredients … ASPARTAME was on the list. Erg.
Like you state in your articles … there’s no labeling on the Wrigley’s Doublemint packaging as being Sugar-Free.
Of course, I stopped chewing Doublemint right away.
I attached a picture of my package, and here’s the complete ingredient list – and there’s aspartame AND Ace-k in it:
Made of: Sugar, Gum Base, Dextrin, Corn Syrup, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Less than 2% of: Glycerol, Aspartame, Gum Arabic, Soy Lecithin, Acesulfame K, Colors (Titanium Dioxide, Blue 1 Lake, Beta-Carotene), BHT (to Maintain Freshness).
My son lives in Canada and on my last visit there, I was able to purchase Doublemint without the ASPARTAME.
Thanks so much for all your work – if I hadn’t read your book, Sweet Poison, and all of your articles about this on your newsletter, I would never have known about this.
Guess you have saved my life. How do I thank you for that?
